Dear all,

A new release of McStas "next-generation", v. 3.1 has been built and is ready for download!

Download and installation instructions are available via our GitHub download pages<https://github.com/McStasMcXtrace/McCode/tree/master/INSTALL-McStas-3.x>.

Selected highligts from the release are listed below. The full list of changes is also available at https://mcstas.org/CHANGES_McStas.

  *   Fixes of issues from last release:
     *   A large number of issues from the earlier 3.0 were addressed, see the relevant GitHub issues for details:
     *   https://github.com/McStasMcXtrace/McCode/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aclosed+label%3Amcstas-3.0<https://github.com/McStasMcXtrace/McCode/issues?q=is:issue+is:closed+label:mcstas-3.0>
     *   Migration-docs and guides for transitioning between McStas 2.x and 3.x can be found on our GitHub-based Wiki<https://github.com/McStasMcXtrace/McCode/wiki>
     *   3.1 can be considered the first "full-quality" production release of McStas with GPU support
  *   Tools
     *   mcgui allows definition of an "external editor", see the configuration menu.
     *   On Linux we preconfigure for gedit (where we now also provide syntax-highlighting, on macOS and Windows we default to use the OS file-type settings, i.e. whatever you get by double-clicking an instr file.) Use ctrl/meta + shift + e to spawn the editor from mcgui.
  *   Platforms:
     *   We still support 64bit Windows 10/11 on Intel, all recent 64bit macOS including 11.x Big Sur and 12.x Monterey on both Intel and Apple Silicon/M1 processors. Debian-based distros on Intel and Arm, RPM-based distros on Intel. (RPMs are built on/for CentOS and Fedora, you may get varying milage elsewhere.)

We hope you will enjoy this new release!!!
